As 2013 knocks on the door, I find myself again reflecting on a passing year and setting expectations for myself in the coming year.  I shy away from “resolutions” that cannot be kept and are soon forgotten.

However, I do find value in setting goals for myself to accomplish throughout the year.  One of those goals this year is to follow the wise words of Dr. Seuss.  Each day of 2013, I will strive to:

Always do what [I] want and say what [I] feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.


It is so true and I wish sometimes I had started implementing the life lessons shared by Theodor Seuss Geisel when I first enjoyed his books as a child – it would have saved me a lot of guilt and worry.  But, better late than never!  For more stellar adages from Dr. Seuss go here.

I wish you a very Happy New Year and hope that you will follow my journeys on NC & Beyond in 2013!
